SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Tesla Motors is opening its first charging station in Utah as it establishes a nationwide network for an all-electric sedan.
Workers were putting final touches Tuesday on a 4-stall charging station in Blanding.
It shares property with the Blanding Visitor Center, where officials say they’re waiting for the first Tesla to show up in a remote part of southern Utah.
The Palo Alto, Calif.-based company says 30 minutes of charging gives the Tesla sedan enough juice to travel up to 150 miles.
Tesla says it has more than 60 charging stations along a meandering path across the country, and plans to add dozens more through 2015, including several more in Utah.
